Council Tax bands

1. Band ranges and charges

The level of Council Tax for your property is based upon a valuation set by the Valuation Office Agency which is part of the HM Revenue and Customs.

Council Tax bands are calculated using the value of the property that you live at a certain point in time.

Properties in England are put into one of eight bands (A-H), depending on the price they would have sold for in April 1991, when valuations for the current system were made.

Council Tax Bands and Charges 2017/18 are as follows:

Council Tax Evaluation Band Ranges of Value Charge
A Up to £40,000 1,162.67
B More than £40,000 and up to £52,000 1,356.45
C More than £52,000 and up to £68,000 1,550.23
D More than £68,000 and up to £88,000 1,744.02
E More than £88,000 and up to £120,000 2,131.58

G More than £160,000 and up to £320,000 2,906.69
H More than £320,000 3,488.04

We will set the amount of tax that you must pay based on these Council Tax bands. You can check your property band on the GOV.UK website.

Some Council Tax bills can be reduced if you are entitled to discounts, exemptions or Council Tax support.
